Like many people who have visited this site you also may be asking how do I start a Redbox franchise? Many people have been to our site looking for information because they see a great profit making opportunity in their community, but the answer is that currently individuals cannot start a Redbox franchise. The only way to have a Redbox kiosk is that you have a high traffic location and the company may choose to lease space from you. High traffic locations are reportedly at 15,000 people passing by per day, but there are instances of McDonalds, Walgreens and CVS stores in rural locations that had considerably less traffic.

For those that don’t know, Redbox works like other vending machines that dispense soda, candy and other things but instead it rents DVDs and games. Redbox is the most visable company in the industry as their large red boxes are very noticable but they also have over 50 percent of the DVD rental market. Redbox prices are very competitive with movies at $1.20 over a 24 hour period. You can return the movie to any other Redbox unit, which is very convenient for people travelling.
If you own a retail location with lots of foot traffic and would like to try a Redbox DVD machine you will need to fill out an application online and they will analyze your spot to see if there is sufficient profit potential to place the unit there. The upper end of revenue a store owner can expect is $500 monthly for really high traffic locations after electricity and internet connection.
To apply with Redbox click the link and begin the process of discussing your location with the company and see if your location has sufficient traffic.
There are other opportunities other than Redbox for owning a DVD kiosk through other companies if you are interested in capitalizing on the DVD kiosk rental opportunity. Renting DVDs from kiosks have been a popular and convenient way to rent movies since 2001. Many locations have been tested since then but high traffic locations with retail foot traffic have been the most profitable.
There are considerable risks in starting a dvd kiosk business as you may be competing with Redbox directly and their brand name, low prices and technology are going to be hard to beat. In addition there is considerable logistics to consider such as getting the licensing from movie distributors to rent the movies, the technology to dispense movies and collect payment from customers and rotating the inventory. Another concern is after making this investment, whether people will continue renting movies from kiosks instead of downloading in their home.
